Remember the movie 'The Russians R coming' Red Dawn? Those were the good old days, fear............
Russia will be sorry.
This is time to go on the offensive against treacherous enemy, not peace pipe.
Yes Russia said no s-300 but it didn´t say no to s-500 ha ha ha.Gotta read the fine print i guess.It´s also easy to call the s-300 for example fg-120.This is just a smart chess move by the Russians to get the attention somewhere else.
It will not be surprising, knowing that everything on Earth, actually is linked to money, power, political strategies and dirty tricks played to impress potential adversaries, than Iran get those missiles or their copy (with different name and reference number). They could be Chinese, Pakistani, Indian or from whatever country capable to build those 20 years old missiles or their equivalents. Iran just needs to find the proper salesman. It is also possible than since their initiation those defensive rockets had been (under licence, or not) build by the Iranian military industry. American and Israelis must be well aware of this. Otherwise they will have already attacked Iran... JCM
Mr. Medvedev should know clearly that with his decision to stop sell S-300 he can bring Iran down and can allow Israel & America attack Iran, of course he is wrong and he made big mistake. Soviet, Ameriac & Nato could not defeat normal people in Afghanistan then how they can defeat a strong country such Iran with its united people with the Government. If Israel & USA started war with Iran, who will end that war, from history everybody knows Iran can prolong war for years, who suffer from that, surely America, Europe and Russia because there will be an end for Shaiks to Rule Persian Gulf countries and all these countries will be under rule of Iran, then whole Europe will be under the control of Iran.
RUSSIA HAS PLEASED america AND israel......

> Apply your "S-300 defensive weapons" argument to the Patriot missiles(purely defensive) installed on Russian borders and see how you like it. As for the other parts of your argument, didn't Russia sing the UN Iran weapons ban sanctions? Russia if fulfilling its obligation under this sanction. Perhaps you don't agree with Russia signing the weapons(and other) sanctions on Iran.
Excellent point! PR101 is way off base and frankly speaking PR101 is dying to become an American but evidentally can't.
I understand your arguments very well, and can't say I do not agree with nearly all of them (particularly, that about "inferiority complex" is very interesting one). But, you see, the point is that westerners (or, if you want, those imperialists who rule there) are still too powerfull and their overall potential still too large, so that Russia alone is not yet of that strength to be able to oppose them in an open way. Therefore, Russia must play the game in a tactic way, and thats why I am of opinion that the troika works well (under these circumstances). They simply have made the agression on Iran less likely now, at least for some time ahead.
As for the ordinary people over there, in America, I think its pretty obvious there is a rapidly growing discontent with their ruling elite (the recent economic near-collapse, etc.). In addition, with the exclusion of UK, the rest of EU is surely not that much pro-US and they are fairly moderate. Therefore, the time works for "the free world" and the Russia's troika is doing exactly that: they are buying time!
With a crowd of powerfull lobbies, often directly opposed against each other, US is a highly non-controlable and unpredictable entity. What we all need is some kind of collapse to just happen there, in US, and the whole world will be a more stable political structure (even US will be more stable then). I think Obama, or whoever might be in his position, is virtually helpless given all these very influental lobbies and groups. Dealing with US politically is the same as being involved with a sick man, who is in addition potentially highly agresive.
To conclude: the most important is that the attack on Iran is less probable now, and that has been achieved.
I will not go that far but one thing is clear: great deal of pressure has been brought to bear on Russia. Russia needs to consolidate its military and economic position and the Iranian leader should have worked with Russia closely rather than putting Russia on a situation where it can face economic reprisals from the empire of chaos and its captive European friends. I do think that the Russia's leaders are not that stupid. I am incline to think this was a tactical retreat.
It looks like both Medvedev and Putin are nothing more than a lot of bluff and bravado. They made a show of standing up to the Israelis demands that the world sanction Iran and attack it atomic facilities.
Then US President Obama and his Israeli occupied administration said boo and the two Russian leaders quickly buckled under, more than ready to fed their Iranian allies to the wolves to placate the Americans for a few crumbs. This act of craven cowardice shows that Russia is nothing more than a paper tiger. God help anyone who actually thinks that Russia will support its allies in the future.
It seems like the Israelis' influence on Russia foreign policy grows greater each day. Maybe we should start describing Russia as being Tel Aviv North.
I am not sure that Medvedev wants to destroy Russia deliberately but I am not Russian but yet I have very little faith in his leadership. His idea of "Modernizing Russia" are never made clear. Thus, one of the hallmark of the President Mr.Medvedev’s presidency is that of lack of specificity and bold ideas of what he means by Modernizing Russia. Of course, we know that in the 20th century modenising Russia came with high cost. So in 21 century version of modernizing Russia must take a different approach. So far, primarily U.S technology transfer to Russia is in high tech consumer goods. What the President of Russia and those advising him do not seem to fully appreciate is that the U.S technological edge is based on procuring scientists and engineers from Europe and heavy investment in the Military-Industrial Complex. But we can see now that formula has failed to serve the U.S economy. What is needed for Russia is a new kind of innovative technologies not driven by the imperatives of militarism.
As for opining the gates of GMO to Russia, I think the Russian population will not go for it.
But here take a look at this url link from today’s website Ria Novosti on John Travolta visit to Moscow! Can you imagine the a visit of a Russian actor no matter how good he or she may be being leading the news in reputable U.S government run website that supposed to producing info on key development in the U.S? And for this and similar things—the Russian elite are showing clear signs of inferiority complex.
